The BEST Christmas Gift Guide for teenage girls

(and things you'll secretly want for yourself, too)

Huurah! It’s Christmas! We are officially allowed to stuff our faces with chocolate and if we drink too much it’s OK because it’s festive and even our nans are knocking back the sherries.

But what about when it comes to buying presents for teenage girls?

That’s when things start getting a bit tricky.

When we were teenagers, there was no such thing as Instagram, we didn’t have a flipping clue about contouring, and as for cool room furnishings we had a Groovy Chick lamp that we clung onto until we were in our early twenties.

So what the hell do you buy a teenage girl in 2016? What do they even like? And what can you get them that’ll make YOU look cool?

Well, as ever, we’re here to make your job THAT much easier.

Whether you’ve got a niece/little sister/neighbour/just know a sixteen year old, we’ve got you covered.

(And some of these are so good that we actually want them for ourselves. So maybe you could share this link back with the teenager and highlight the bits you want.)
